In the gaming world, most consumers remain fixated on one single thing: graphics. Ever since the Wii was introduced, another point has been focused on: control. But one area that gets very little attention, even today, is audio. Sony has always seemed to care more about audio than the other guys when it comes to gaming, and at E3 this week the company announced that they will be releasing a "subwoofer built-in, all-in-one Surround Sound System for the PlayStation 3."

It's clearly the bandwagon to be on in the home entertainment industry, and now Sony is expanding the term to an area that has thus far remained clear of any tampering: audio.

Uh, okay? We have to say, we're all about taking risks, and we greatly appreciate it when companies deviate from the straight-and-narrow in order to take a chance. But it'll still take some time for us to get our minds around the latest two laptop speaker docks from Asus. The uBoom Series of compact notebook speakers are large docks that are powered via a USB 2.0 socket, which--if you have a netbook-probably means you'll be using half of your available USB ports to power these sound cannons. These devices are the first ever by Asus, with the uBoom and uBoom Q soundbars adding serious sound to notebooks,... Read more...
